Amyloid precursor protein accumulated with an excess of presynaptic proteins, whereas post synaptic proteins were depleted.
Researchers report it’s easier to control cognitive activity via transcranial magnetic stimulation in people with the Val/Val genetic variant of BDNF.
A new machine-learning algorithm is helping researchers uncover the secrets of the quark-gluon plasma.
Cannabinol, an active ingredient in cannabis, can help protect brain cells from oxidative damage and preserve mitochondrial function.
Researchers have identified two blood proteins that influence health and longevity. Developing drugs to target these proteins could help slow the aging process.
Middle-aged men who worry more or display traits associated with neuroticism are at greater biological risk for cardiovascular disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes as they age.
How fatigued an older person feels after performing certain tasks could be an indicator of death within three years, a new study reports.
Study reports 1 in 5 teens and young adults who seek treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders may have previously unrecognized social impairments characteristic of ASD.
Walking patterns improve when people embarked on cognitive tasks at the same time, suggesting people are more stable while walking and performing tasks than when they solely focus on walking.
Infants from lower socioeconomic backgrounds show improvements in brain activity associated with learning and thinking after one year of monthly cash support provided to their families. The findings show interventions designed to reduce poverty positiv…
Researchers successfully transplanted genetically modified, clinical-grade pig kidneys into a brain-dead human, replacing their native kidneys. The results demonstrate how xenotransplantation could help address organ shortages.
Those who were sad had rapid improvements in mood when they utilized their strongest skills.
Ventral spinocerebellar tract neurons (VSTNs) are necessary and sufficient for regulating locomotion in mice, a new study reports.
A newly developed control technology that combines proprioception with visual perception allows robots to tackle rough terrains faster and more efficiently.
In natural vision, visual memories of an image are affected by the size of the vision on the retina.
Socially isolated older adults are more likely to have missing teeth and an accelerated rate of tooth loss compared to those with stronger social networks, a new study reports.
A new study identifies a neural network that appears to be responsible for the development of tics and tic disorders. Researchers say deep brain stimulation applied to this network helps alleviate symptoms of tics.
Researchers discovered more than 1000 genes that are substantially more active in the brains of one sex versus the other. The findings may help behavioral sex differences in mammals.
The body relies on multiple maps based on the choice of the motor system.
Study reveals a link between spoken languages and the sense of touch.
